Male Tears: a fundraiser poetry show for InsideOUT

We are the hysterical feminists the internet warned you about.
We drink male tears with our morning coffee.
We don’t care about your feelings.

‘Male Tears’ is an epic night of poetry from badass and bitter Wellingtonian queers. Prepare for hilarious and biting commentary on girlhood and LGBTQIA resistance in the social-media era: stories of growth, rebellion and beautiful, youthful anger. Some of the capital’s sharpest minds and tongues will be gracing the stage.

All proceeds will be donated to InsideOUT, a national charity that supports young people of sexual, sex and gender minorities to have a sense of belonging and safety in their schools and communities. Learn more at

It’s a night of politics and poetry not to be missed.
